The Federal Saurian Republic of Saurisisia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Consul Vamon Darukhal with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 18.937 billion Saurisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sauropolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Saurisian economy, worth a remarkable 4,384 trillion Saurian Lire a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 231,538 Saurian Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, the government is under the thumb of countless special interests, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", and all artwork is carefully screened for offensive material. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Saurisisia's national animal is the Dinosaur, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Saurisisia is ranked 32,818th in the world and 1,152nd in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.86 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
